NightTone makes your screen more comfortable, enjoyable and healthier by shifting the colors of your display to a warmer, eye-friendly palette. It makes you sleep and feel better.
It's perfect for everyone's health, especially for people with visual perception problems, light sensitivity or discomfort.
• The science behind the app
The monitor's blue light tricks our circadian rhythm (our natural body clock) into thinking that it’s daytime. It suppresses melatonin (that sends "time to sleep" cues) and builds up histamine that helps wake us up, boosts attention and reaction times. In other words, it resets that feeling of tiredness and hurts our sleep cycle.
Just remember: It's bad to be exposed to sleep-inhibiting blue light during the night.

Ratings and Reviews
I like it
I just purchased NightTone. I had been using Night Shift on my iPhone and was looking for the same type of feature for my Mac Pro. I found that, while there is a Night Shift for High Sierra, it only works with Apple monitors (just a guess. I don’t know this as a fact). I use a super-wide LG curved monitor, so my display options do not include Night Shift. So, as an alternative, I’d been using funky blue-blocker reading glasses at night.
This evening, immedicatly after downloading NightTone, I clicked the small cloud/moon icon in the menu bar, selected Turn on Tone Now, and the relief to my eyes was instant; I could actually feel the difference. I was also able to set a schedule so the display will always toggle on/off based on the time of day.
I used this for a few months, and liked it except that it bumps up the screen brightness when it’s switched on, or when you change the color. It goes bright, and then you have to hit the dim button to get it back to the correct brightness. It got annoying to be blinded for a second every time I turned it on. Plus, the color seems to cloud over the black areas of the screen, reducing contrast in a bad way. The scheduler is a nice feature, though I personally didn’t use it much, and I liked the ability to customize the color.
What you are describing is actually the built in macOS auto-brightness functionality. You can disable it if you go to your Mac's System Preferences > Display > click the Display tab > uncheck the "Automatically adjust brightness" option.

Perfect for us Night Owls out there
Love the App! With the icon bar at the top, it makes it easy to turn on and off. Would recommend to a follow night dweller seeking eye ease in the dawn hours. Well worth the $2.99, save your eyes people and save plastic with not purcahsing a snap screen cover.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
